A couple
being in their nineties are having problems remembering things. They decided to go to the doctor for a checkup. The doctor told them that they're physically okay, but they might want to start writing things down to help them remember.


Later that night while
watching TV, the old man rose from his chair.


His wife asked, "Where
are you going?"


"To the kitchen," he replied.


"Will you get me a bowl of ice cream?"


"Sure."


"Don't you think you should write it down so as
to remember it?" she asks.


"No, I can remember it."


"Well, I'd rather
have some strawberries on top, too. You'd better write it down, because you know you'll forget it."


He says, "I can remember that! You want a bowl of ice cream with strawberries."


"I'd also like
whipped cream. You are not likely to remember that, so you'd better write it down!" she retorted.


Irritated, he said, "I don't need to write it down, I can remember it! Leave me alone! Ice cream with strawberries and whipped cream -- I got it, for goodness sake!" Then he grumbled into the kitchen.


Having returned from the kitchen the old man handed his wife a plate of bacon and eggs.


Having staring at the plate for a while she said... "Where's my toast?’’
